20th Century Fox is making several adjustments on its release date schedule. The studio decides to move back "The Fantastic Four", which hasn't announced any cast just yet, roughly three months from March 6, 2015 to a new slot on June 19 in the same year.

The "Fantastic Four" reboot joins such potential tentpoles as "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (May 1), "Jurassic World" (June 12), "Terminator 5" (July 1), "Man of Steel 2" (July 17), and "Ant-Man" (July 31) in the 2015 crowded summer.

Fox's "Independence Day" sequel, meanwhile, is getting bumped to a year later. Initially planned for July 3, 2015, Roland Emmerich's "ID Forever Part 1" will now make its way out on July 1, 2016. It will now battle it out against Sony's "Angry Birds". No cast has been announced either for this pic.

"The Secret Service" and "Assassin's Creed" are also pushed back. The Matthew Vaughn-directed film leaves November 11, 2014 to occupy the initial date left vacant by the "Fantastic Four" reboot, and the Michael Fassbender starrer is now set for August 7, 2015 after giving up its original date to the superhero redo.

"Susan Cooper", Paul Feig's next directing vehicle starring Melissa McCarthy, is scheduled to arrive in the United States on May 22, 2015, and an untitled Vince Vaughn film from "Delivery Man" helmer Ken Scott will hit theaters nationwide on October 24, 2014.

Millennium Films' "Hercules: The Legend Begins" has got a new date as well. Originally set for March 1, 2014, the Kellan Lutz starrer is now slated to be released by Summit Entertainment on February 7, five months before rival film "Hercules: The Thracian Wars" starring Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson comes out on July 25.

"The Legend Begins" will face off competition from "The Lego Movie" and "The Monuments Men". "RoboCop" reboot will make its way out a few days later on February 12.

Apparently Johnny Storm is now a black guy in the FF reboot. Wow. I'll pass, thanks.
